    insightful watch! experimental & authentic. highly introspective, earnest, & personal, but relatable. crafted with a particular understanding of the female experience that aims to share it with the world. feels like a film that wishes to converse with you, from woman to woman, woman to man. i very much enjoyed the verbal exchange with the charlatan chiromancer. personally invested in the occult sciences, so this was a fascinating film to me. i'd rewatch it because this one is certainly a film where…

    "Our bodies and our minds will be fragmented into their smaller parts until not one part remains. Annihilation."
